Default 2001 sc2 notice when car idles temp. increases

I have a 2001 sc2. I noticed ( while in park ) when I run the a/c the temp gauge is little over 1/4. But, if I do the same thing w/ the a/c off the temp goes up to almost 1/2. That is still a good way from the red, but I am just wondering if that is normal. Thanks

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

It's perfectly normal. When the A/C is on, the radiator cooling fan comes on to pull air through the condenser and give you better cooling. This has the side effect of cooling the engine. Without the A/C on the cooling fan won't come on till the engine is warmer. Around 210 deg. F I think.

...
There is nothing more frightening than ignorance in action.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
